Don't blame anybody but Marsh. Not Melynk's fault that Marsh didn't know how to run a restaurant in a less than stellar locations. Of course Melnyk would put in his own restaurant, it's his team.

The last time I was there, the food and service were terrible. As much as I think Marshy is a stand-up guy, he's clearly not a great restaurateur. I wish him all the success in the world, but if he wants to run restaurants, he really needs to surround himself with restaurant people. At the very least, he'll need a manager that has enough control and knowledge to run the place the way it should be run.

All I can say from experience, back in my college days at the Gonq, is that Marshy's was the spot to be on Thursday's for a lot of students (all you can eat wings for $9.99 and some sort of deal on a pitcher). The students would go there and have a lot of fun. Wings weren't bad for the price either. So I don't know what happened, I will just take your words for it.

Looks like we all agree that The Gene started Marshy's demise by mercilessly kicking him to the curb.

Good point. Every single vote that has been cast indicates that that is a correct assessment.

How often were you going and how many wings/beers did you have? Maybe you played a bigger role keeping them in business than you thought ... Wink

Haha, I doubt that. I don't drink, so there was no money in that for them from me, and I only ever ate there.... maybe 2 or 3 times in my life Razz

I just know that pretty much weekly, my classmates and other students would pack in there... obviously not enough to keep it in business. Mind you this was also 2004-06 and a lot has changed since then.

I know how business works and life in general for that matter. I'm sure we'll be reading about Marshy falling on hard times soon and we can all reflect on the dark day when The Gene set his demise in motion.

These polls are like shifting sand. I'm sure there will be wrong answers here and there.

It's almost as if the poll was rigged or something. Sarcasm

Rigged to absolve Marshy of any responsibility?

Nah.
